John Barnes – Caesar’s Bicycle
May Sarton – I Knew a Phoenix
Iris Murdoch – The Green Knight

Not much to say about Caesar’s Bicycle, which was a silly but entertaining time travel book. Alternate timelines, good guys fighting bad guys across parallel worlds, Caesar’s army equipped with bicycles. I wouldn’t mine reading the other books in the series.

Not even sure why I picked up the May Sarton autobiography. It was interesting at first, then it wasn’t, and I stopped reading it.

Green Knight was my first Iris Murdoch. It was both annoying and interesting. Well-drawn characters, but at the same time pretty much no one in the book was very sympathetic and some were outright annoying. I ended up sort of skimming through parts, but I would read more of her stuff.
